A Sympathetic Savior

Hebrews 4:16

“15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who in every respect has been tested as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

Because Christ came into the world and walked among us, we have a savior who was tempted as we are tempted.  Christ was able to overcome all temptation, but because he was subject to temptation, he is able to understand our struggles.

So, when we pray for forgiveness, we can be confident that we will receive God’s mercy and grace.  And we can be bold before the Lord, and reveal the secrets of our hearts.

Our lives, as Christians, are to be lived with this assurance, this comfort, this hope.

May the love of Christ be with you,

Rev. Eric Lanier
